Since we announced the Dimensity 800 series, media have been analyzing the new chip and its status among the new 5G mid-range market, with many noting its impressive feature-set and expected performance will bring a potentially great 5G experience to the mass market.

Andy Boxall of Digital Trends stated that MediaTek has “blurred the line between its flagship, high-end Dimensity 1000 processor and the mid-range chip so much, it’s difficult to separate them,” pointing out that “…MediaTek needs a new dictionary because it’s not very midrange at all.”

Sascha Segan of PCMag compared the Dimensity 800 to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765, noting “the Dimensity 800 has better mid-band 5G performance than the Snapdragon 765” and predicting that it “will probably outperform Qualcomm’s solution on raw CPU measures”.

Focusing on the chipset’s specs, Hadlee Simons of Android Authority stated the Dimensity 800 “doesn’t seem to falter” in the photography category, highlighting key features including noise reduction, 4K HDR recording, AI-powered HDR and dedicated facial detection silicon.

Tom’s Hardware noted a key point that “unlike the new X50 and X55 chipsets from Qualcomm, the Dimensity 800 is a single-chip 5G SoC”

Meanwhile, Michael Allison of Android Central published a story on the Dimensity 800, highlighting the chipset favorably by concluding with, “By bringing [5G capability] to lower-end phones, MediaTek takes us a little closer to that world of 5G everywhere.” With four high performance Arm Cortex-A76 cores “you can expect better multi-core performance in theory from the MediaTek processor.”
